Josy taught English as a second language in Tokyo and Yokohama, Japan for two years.

She also lived in the United States Territory of Guam for two years 2001-2003.

While working on her Master's degree she was also a graduate assistant at the Autism Center at Sacred Heart Hospital. She achieved all of this while working full time and raising her three children.
Josy enjoyed reading, traveling, and especially spending time with her family and friends. Her favorite family times were their annual trips to New Orleans to see the Mardi Gras parades on St. Charles Avenue until she was too ill to attend.
Her family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, please make donations in Josy's name to Autism Pensacola - AutismPensacola.org.
